Pirelli says that tyre will become even more important than usual role at next weekend at Monaco Grand Prix. Also they state that two pit-stop average for next street race, and they believe the difficult situation not repeat in this weekend like last race at Barcelona.
Last race at Barcelona most teams struggled with tyre degradation issue, and they made four-stop, that was too much for Formula 1 races.
Following the Spanish Grand Prix the Italian tyre maker announced that and they will change Formula 1 tyres from Canadian Grand Prix.
“In Monaco we’d expect an average of two pit stops per car, because in complete contrast to the last race at Barcelona, Monaco has very low tyre wear and degradation. This doesn’t make the race any less strategic however, as in the past we have seen drivers trying completely different strategies yet ending up very close to each other at the finish.” Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said.
“The last race in Spain was won from lower down on the grid than it has ever been won before, so it will be interesting to see if this pattern can repeat itself in Monaco: a track that is renowned for being difficult to overtake on. Because of this, strategy will become even more important than usual, with teams trying to use tactics to improve on their starting positions.”
